It goes on to specify the duties and obligations of government officials, information that is exempted from disclosure, and the role and powers of appellate authorities. This book also places the freedom of information movement in international perspective by comparing Indian law and practice with those of other countries. It is also a practical guide to the implementation of the RTI Act, 2005 by all the stakeholders: demanders of information - the citizens; suppliers of information - public authorities; public information officers; and appellate authorities. The handbook discusses Central Information Commission and Court decisions section-wise, which will be particularly useful for Public Information Officers and Appellate Authorities who need to be kept informed of how the Commission and Courts are interpreting the law so that their own decisions can be moderated accordingly.
